When you block a member, their posts are only collapsed, and they can still PM you.
I've never bothered with ignoring someone because I could still see their collapsed posts, and I'd inevitably open them up to read them. I expect others' willpower is equally inadequate, considering the hobby we're in. It would be better to not even know ignored users have posted. The Ignore feature should help prevent fights by eliminating contact with enemies, not just add an extra mouse click or layer of privacy before the vitriol spills.
I wonder if there is a correlation between bannishment, and the length of your "blocked" list.
Interestingly, this was my 8888'th post.
I hope not, because I block every single commenter in the anime thread.
Congratulations! In a base 8 system, this would be an even more significant milestone.
I was joking with my GF about the perfect Valentines day gift for me, and mentioned a binary watch I once got. She replied "what about a watch with the numbers in Klingon" which sounded kind of cool.
Not knowing what Klingon numbers look like I googled. On googling I found that they use a base-10 system WTF!? I was hoping it would be something like base 7 or 13.
